Wild Things-Wyld Kiwi Garage 1966-69

Dear friends,

Today I am going to present you a wild collection with primitive sounds from New Zealand’s 60s music groups. This is a collection of 16 singles where the Kiwis compensated for their isolation with crude mania, and this has some ferocious pounders.

My favourite from this compilation is the “I can’t make a friend” by the Action with very snotty vocals and a real hunting tune. Also the 13th Floor Elevators “You’re gonna miss me”, covered by Tom Thumb is one of the most powerful covers of this all time garage-punk classic.

This compilation shows the real hunger of 60s youth to play music and express their feelings, which was the same almost all across the word.

Track List

1.La De Da's - "Don't You Stand In My Way" (2:14)
2.La De Da's - "How Is the Air Up There?" (2:32)
3.The Smoke (NZ) - "No More Now" (2:12)
4.Sandy Edmonds - "Come See Me" (2:28)
5.Crescendos - "Now She's Mine" (2:50)
6.The Action - "I Can't Make a Friend" (2:16)
7.Tom Thumb - "You're Gonna Miss Me" (2:00)
8.Tom Thumb - "I Need You" (2:06)
9.Bluestars - "Social End Product" (2:32)
10.Challenge - "The Crunch" (2:44)
11.Principals - "I Can't Stop" (2:44)
12.Pleazers - "Hurtin' All Over" (2:37)

You have a really nice blog here!

My name is Jenny Rosander, and I'm working at a museum in Sweden. This summer we will have a new exhibition, "" and I'm looking for youngsters with a interest for the sixties.

Do you have any ideas or tips about people under the age of 25 that are interested, or involving the sixties in their everyday life?

Please send me a mail if you do:

we also have a website (but well, its in swedish) and we are also found at Facebook.
